Designing Microelectromechanical Tunable Delay Lines


ECE Professor Matteo Rinaldi was awarded a patent for “Microelectromechanical tunable delay line circuit.”

Abstract Source: USPTO

Tunable delay circuit devices have an input port, an output port, at least three parallel paths connecting the input port and the output port, on each path, an input switch and an output switch, and on each path, a plurality of shunt resonant tanks connected between the input switch and the output switch, each shunt resonant tank periodically chargeable from the input port and dischargeable to the output port by operation of the input switch and the output switch.
